    When he said he's back I believe it. He looked rejuvenated and took out a decent contender. He used his fight IQ and showed his durability. I think he still has some gas left in the tank and can make another title run if he keeps up his current regime of training and conditioning.

    I could care less, but only by a tiny little bit. He's not championship material.

    The thing about Glover is that he is slow.

    He loses to the top guys for sure - Gus, AJ, DC all beat him imho.

    I thought OSP had a decent chance too but Glover exposed the holes in his game big time.

    Good win for Glover, I'm happy for him cause he seems to be a good guy on top of the fact that he is a great fighter.

    I still think a fight between him and AJ would be entertaining. Really 205 is widw open class with JJ out of the picture.

    That would be a good one.


    I think Glover gives everyone a good fight except for Cormier & Jones. Hoping for the fight with Johnson/Manuwa winner next though.

    Yeah he looked good. He had a good recovery after that liver shot.

    OSP legs = his best weapon and he just stopped using them.

    Sad but true. DC grapple f*cks anybody in the division. Moving down was the best thing he ever did.

    Glover's recovery from the first round was stellar. He also showcased his good wrestling and top game. Glover is definitely slowing down and is losing any athleticism he had as he ages, but skill wise he is quite diverse. I think he has good fights with just about everyone outside of Cormier and Jones.

    He doesn't grapplefuck Bones, probably doesn't Gus either. Rumble has shit grappling and always has.

    Glover is something of a one trick pony standings (left/right hook, occasional headkick, legit power) but is a ground and pound beast. If he can get the fight to the ground his opponent is in for some hurt.

    I was agreeing with the previous post in how JJ was superior but as the division is now it's looking like he can walk and stall or take down anyone.

    Rumble did well against Davis who is one of the best grapplers in lhw. Rumble needs a better gas tank.
